I did a search for Eco-Friendly Holiday Cookies and this came up. The Copycat Compost Cookie. The brainchild from a New York Bakery. It has everything from oatmeal, to fritos, potato chips and old coffee ground in it. Check out the recipe. Think you’ll try it. I’m very curious, so I think this may be my next cookie adventure. The types of things you could bake in these cookies could be endless. Thanksgiving leftovers… LOL Fun Times!
